man..I sure like the look of old chromes...Something about that image makes it seem like a look back in time, more so then just an image capture.

Thanks for showing that.

This one has a very "3D" look. Nice one.
Yeah, my new scanner is finally doing some justice to my old slides. Just enough of background blur to give a 3-D look. Thanks Ned.

I agree with Ned about the 3D! I'll bet this one really has a lot of impact when it's projected.
Chris, don't most slides gain a lot more impact when projected? :biggrin: By the way did you ever get hold of a projector?

Nice photograph.
I also like the direct sun.
Thanks for looking Joe! For some reason I've always liked shooting in contrasty light. When it works, it's a killer effect.

Beautiful shot
Hey Gale, thanks for looking and hanging around us anachronistic film shooters!

Well, I've been accused of living in the past! :smile:

Graeme, it was one of those serendipity moments. I had just taken a picture in the other direction of my girlfriend, her daughter, my old college roommate and his stepdaughter when I turned around saw the old gentleman sunning himself, lost in dreams of yesterday, perhaps!

I really like the harsh shadows too. very nice pic.
What's that, the 70's? it sure looks like it is around 78-79 because of the clothes of the guy in the background. Of course, I could be mistaken... In fact I usually am :biggrin: :biggrin: .
